CRS alumni feel a strong connection to Charles River School with fond memories of their unique experiences here. They learned how to explore new ideas, make connections, challenge conventional thinking and take risks. Much of what they learn at CRS stays with them through their life as a student, friend, professional, and volunteer. 
Each year, CRS acknowledges its own by nominating and awarding the Distinguished Alumni Award and the Young Alumni Award to alumni who have made a significant contribution to the school or demonstrated excellence in personal achievement. These awards are presented at our Boston Alumni Reception in April and final assembly in June, respectively.
Be sure to connect to the CRS Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn pages as well for more updates about the school, old photos and more! If you are interested in organizing an alumni gathering in your home city or getting more involved at CRS please do not hesitate to contact us at or call Jessica at 508-785-8215.

The CRS Alumni Association

The Charles River School Alumni Association seeks to strengthen the bond between the school and its former students in ways that are meaningful as well as mutually beneficial. To this end, the Association organizes and supports reunions and other activities that enable former students to reconnect with the school and one another, sustain CRS’ mission and reputation, and cultivate loyalty to and pride in the school.  All alumni are members of the Alumni Association.
